On a number of occasions I have tried to use the object tag to play a wav

I use IE4 or IE5 (and Netscape occasionally)

<bgsound src="mysounds.wav">

works fine, but is not HTML #4 compliant.


Please could someone advise me how to get this working using the object tag,
at least with IE4.

<OBJECT data="mysounds.wav"type="mime type">Phoebe says "mysounds"</OBJECT>

does not.
